This piece is titled 'Reina', which is spanish for the Queen.
This is part of a series of flowers I made that I titled 'Gotcha', because once you looked at them, they had your attention. Very 3 dimensional and you have to walk around the piece in order to see all of it.
This was made entirely from 304 stainless steel. The roots and tapers were forged hot. All of the sheet work was polished by hand and shaped cold.
This piece has graced the cover of 'The Anvils Ring' which is a quarterly publication for ABANA (Artist Blacksmith Association of North America).
Very much a world class piece of sculpture.
When I've taken this to art shows, people fall in love it.
